After years of studying, performing, and writing a wide range of music separately, Los Angeles-native twin composers, vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Jack and Benny Lipson united to birth the award-winning project jackbenny, which injects musical theater storytelling into the gamut of artistic styles. They shared their debut show in 2016 with musician-comedian Reggie Watts, and have since played their "sensational, clever and astute" originals in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Sheridan, Wyoming, where they presented their “musicalette,” Miranda, Please! through the Wyoming Theater Festival, and even in Falam, Myanmar. As the house band for Anita Procedure’s bimonthly A Queer Cabaret, jackbenny has collaborated with artists including Darren Criss, Michael Arden, and Jai Rodriguez, and they play regularly with undie-rockers The Skivvies throughout the West Coast. jackbenny performs once a month in residency at the Lyric Hyperion Theater in Los Angeles and are developing Brainstorm, a 3-character song cycle of their music.
